EmilyCraig posted a topic in Community Trading PostHi everyone! I haven’t been around in a bit because I’ve been building my Etsy shop. But- I’ve reached a point where realize I could really use the input and combined miniatures wisdom of this community- First, I have to say I love Etsy and especially miniatures shopping on Etsy- and it’s really kind of mind boggling when you realize just how many miniatures makers and artisans there are all over the world! I know at least some of you must have experience as merchants on Etsy, either of miniatures supplies and/or handmade artisan miniature items,etc. and I’d love to hear your thoughts or experiences with any parts of the process! One thing I have come across is the huge amount of mass manufactured dollhouse miniatures available for very cheap. It’s hard to compete with those kinds of prices! When setting out to make items for an Etsy shop, how do you decide what to make , and if it will sell? How can you find a niche without overspecializing? These are just some of the things that I have thought as I’ve gone through the early processes of setting up my shop. Here’s the link if you want to check it out https://etsy.me/2M1CJOj - all positive and constructive feedback is welcomed!! Emily C.
